Zombies are a stroke of genius. It has something to do with all the different rum, which makes them strong, and all the strong flavors of Pernod, orgeat syrup and fruit juices. You can't beat the tropical flavor in a Zombie, and you almost can't identify what makes them so great. By the time you are finished, you can't complete a thought, too. So there is that. It's a good idea to limit people to one or two of these or else you'll have a zombie apocalypse on your hands.
  • 2 oz. dark rum 
  • 2 oz. light rum
  • 1 oz. 151-proof rum (The Knot 100 proof liqueur pictured)
  • 1 oz. triple sec
  • 1 tsp. Pernod
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 1 oz orange juice
  • 1 oz pineapple juice
  • 1 oz. guava nectar (optional here)
  • 1 tbsp. orgeat syrup
  • 2 tbsp. grenadine
  • (Optional garnishes: mint sprig, pineapple spear, cherry, orange wheel, lime twist, etc.)
Combine all ingredients except garnishes in a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour into chilled Collins glass or tiki mug.
